Out In the Cold for a Cause.

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

If these folks are doing what they normally do on this street corner, this is filed under the best of the ‘ham. A fraternity at UAB camps out for a few days, collecting money for charity. It’s pretty cold out tonight, but they’re not ready to retreat and head for warmer ground. The only reason I question their motives today is that I was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection three times, and they didn’t approach me for cash. Hopefully tomorrow morning, their true motives will come out. ;)

In the cold for a cause



Spam or ham?

One of my posts recently racked up an interesting comment. It came from someone identified as loans cananda [sic]:

randomham.net is very informative. The article is very professionally written. I enjoy reading randomham.net every day.

I’m not really sure where to begin. First off, I don’t post every day. Second, it’s not really an article. Third….professionally written? Here? Me? I think not! (I don’t want this to be a respectable blog…)

I’m very tempted to go ahead and approve it, because I’m so amused. However, I hate seeing obvious spam comments on blogs, so I probably won’t.

BTW, I hope you can find at least two different meanings in the use of ‘ham’ in the title, based on context. I can. :)

At this point, it should be settled with dodgeball…

I’ve tried to stay away from politics, but I’m a little amused at this. Today, three people announced that tomorrow, they will formally announce their candidacy for Birmingham mayor. The ballot was already very crowded. I’m starting to feel like I’m the only person in Birmingham not running for mayor. It sounds like the makings of an interesting short film…
